A new hospitality company that has increased the turnover of a landmark country park during the pandemic is now offering its expertise to other leisure operators.
Coombe Abbey Park Limited which are behind the award-winning Coombe Abbey Hotel in Warwickshire has now formed No Ordinary Hospitality Management.
The move comes after the team took over the park’s three catering outlets in May 2018 and for the third consecutive year in a row saw revenue growth, despite national lockdowns and the Covid-19 pandemic.
Coombe Abbey Country Park’s three catering outlets generated more than £490,000 of income in 2020 compared to £400,000 of income in 2019, despite a two-and-a-half month closure as part of the national lockdown.
It means the park’s catering operation has recorded its third consecutive year of growth since Coombe Abbey Park Limited – who are the operators of Coombe Abbey Hotel – took over the running of the park’s catering facilities in May 2018.
No Ordinary Hospitality Management works with all types of properties, including Coombe Abbey Hotel, right through to an independent café and the people behind this new venture are the Coombe Abbey management team.
It works with company owners to develop and implement creative strategies and best practices to help venues fulfil their commercial potential through operational management, human resources, sales and marketing and project management.
Richard Harrison, Managing Director of No Ordinary Hospitality Management and Coombe Abbey Park Limited, said he is thrilled to be launching the new company.
He said: “The past year has proven that any business needs to be broader and more diverse than ever before and that is why we have created No Ordinary Hospitality Management.
“Already we are working on a variety of projects and businesses that are extremely exciting and hopefully we can reveal more about them very soon.”
